My Review: A Heart’s Rebellion was actually the perfect name for this book. Jessamine—though not outwardly rebellious—was rebelling in her heart against God after she did not get what she wanted. I’ve never really read anything by Ruth Axtell. But I was pleasantly surprised. The characters were well-developed and constant. I wasn’t sure if I quite liked Jessamine at first. But the more I read the more I understood and liked her. Lancelot was a sweet character. He was shy and quiet. Quite different from the usual heroes of most stories I read. Sometimes I wished he were a little bolder towards Jessamine. But that was just who he was.
It took me a while to really get into the story. The end, for me, seemed to drag just a little. But, all in all, it was a good book. I would like to read another one of Ruth Axtell’s if I get the chance. The characters from the first book in this series Moonlight Masquerade were in A Heart’s Rebellion as well. I didn’t read the first book, but it was quite obvious who the characters were from it. I understood everything completely without having to have read Moonlight Masquerade, which I appreciated.
A Heart’s Rebellion was a good read with excellent morals portrayed. However, it is not one that I will read again. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
